My greatest clinical strengths lie in working with adolescents, young adults, anxiety and OCD, and depression .
Therapy is a place to seek out growth, understanding, and compassion toward yourself and others. And since everyone has a unique story, impacted by people and experiences both past and present, it is crucial that therapy is personalized. Whether you're working toward self-exploration, acceptance, change, or all of the above, we can find a path together. I will collaborate with you in assessing concerns and working toward growth, while providing support throughout your journey.

I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and adults treating life transitions, anxiety, depression , anger management, traumatic experiences, sexual trauma, personality issues, death anxiety, and other issues.
Psychotherapy is a process, not an event, and healing and transformation is possible. Through creating a non-judgmental and compassionate therapeutic environment, I help foster insights into your distress, helping translate these discoveries into an improved quality of life. By relieving symptoms and addressing the source of problems, the process of therapy promotes well-being, meaning, and purpose. Psychotherapy is an effective method for promoting wellness and facilitating enduring positive change. Everyone has the innate desire and ability to lead authentic, meaningful, and purposeful lives. Psychotherapy is a proven path to uncover and access that potential.

I have provided behavioral healthcare services across the lifespan and have worked on a variety of issues including anxiety, depression , OCD, bipolar disorder, immigration and acculturation issues, LGBTQIA+ and other marginalized communities, burnout, job stress, trauma, substance abuse, eating disorder, ADHD, ODD, relationship problems, and women's issues.
My ideal client is someone looking for a therapist who is going to partner with them for change - not just give advice and "chit chat" for an hour.

My clients come from all walks of life but I am especially passionate about working with immigrant and minority groups and am passionate about social justice and equality in behavioral healthcare.

Life challenges can feel overwhelming, especially when it feels like our world has been turned upside down. Sometimes, a sudden event occurs-such as a new medical diagnosis or relationship loss-which disrupts our life and creates uncertainty. Even expected transitions can bring unexpected reactions. For example, a new baby, job, or move to a new city can bring excitement yet leave us feeling out of sorts. Ongoing concerns can also feel unsettling. Struggling with chronic health difficulties, depression , anxiety, ADHD, or feeling like we are not where we want to be can significantly impact our quality of life.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
